These Artworks Come to Life When You Place a Mirror on It

István Orosz is a Hungarian artist best known for his fantastic anamorphic art. The distorted pieces come to life when a cylindrical mirror is placed atop the artwork; seemingly abstract imagery transforms into detailed and realistic figures and faces.
“To create a sculpture that catches the light and structure of a building and lets the eye wander, to feel that here my eye could live, here a part of me could stay, is a great achievement. The sculptures give the viewer a different perspective on space. They look different from every viewpoint. You long to be in them, and they seem almost more meaningful for that.”
